Protect Yourself from Illegal Collection Agency Tactics

FDCPA, illegal debt collection, collection agency harassment, debt collector practices, debt collector problems, debt attorneyThere is a Federal law that we want to share with Wisconsin consumers called the “Fair Debt Collections Practices Act,” or “FDCPA.”  The Federal Trade Commission enforces the FDCPA. 

The main purpose of the law is to protect people just like you from illegal collection practices that some debt collectors may attempt.  It is important to get the facts about this law, to protect yourself, but also to know what to do if you have been violated.  If you find yourself in a situation whereby debt collectors are acting in an illegal manner, you have the right to file a claim.  Time to react is limited, so speak to a bankruptcy attorney as soon as possible. If you are unsure about whether or not to file a complaint, a Debt Advisors bankruptcy attorney can help.

Dealing with aggressive, rude creditors and their agents adds more unnecessary stress to your already stressful debt situation.  If you or someone you know is being harassed by debt collectors, it is important to know your rights. Debt Advisors Law Offices is a Wisconsin-based bankruptcy law firm that can help advice whether or not you may have a case against a debt collection agency or debt collector.

When a Collection Agency Violates Consumer Rights

The Fair Debt Collections Practices Act is very clear; you do not have to tolerate the outlined unlawful behaviors.  Violations of the Fair Debt Collections Practices Act, is a serious matter.  The facts and examples shared on this website represent a sample of consumer precautions, and protections that the FDCPA offers.

Here are some facts about the Fair Debt Collections Practices Act:

  • The FDCPA governs unlawful debt collection in the form of mail, phone & email
  • The FDCPA prohibits a debt collector from contacting you at your place of work

  • The FDCPA states that threats to garnish wages, sue, imprison, or evict you are unlawful
  • The FDCPA prevents collectors from harassing, lying, or making derogatory statements to you
  • The FDCPA stops debt collectors from false representation and regulates what they can say
  • The FDCPA prevents debt collectors from adding fees or additional charges to your current debt

  • 5 star review  My experience with Debt Advisors was truly a blessing in disguise. My wife and I were truly elated to be a part of a first time home buyer program with a well known state agency. This however turned out to be a nightmare We were one of the many who, during the Bush years ended up getting locked into a merciless ,ever increasing mortgage that was supposed to have a fixed rate. After countless attempts to try for modification or refinancing we soon found out the state agency didn't allow for such recourse. We felt the weight of the world was on our shoulders. That was when we decided to try Debt Advisors. Their attorneys were very knowledgeable and assuring. They were a great help in lifting what was a grievous burden. I would recommend their services to anyone.

  • 5 star review  I filed a chapter 7 bankruptcy at Debt Advisors with Attorney Janice Nabke and the entire experience was nowhere near as stressful as I was worried about thanks to Janice who was very caring and dedicated to doing everything she could to make the whole process as simple as possible. Janice is very experienced with Bankruptcy cases and knew every correct step to take and was very detailed in explaining everything that I needed to prepare for and what to expect from beginning to end but what really stood out to me was how nice she was with a great personality so I would like to thank her for all of the hard work she put fourth and would highly recommend her to anybody seeking bankruptcy assistance. I would like to make special mention to Holly Mclure Larson who helped me out more than I could possibly imagine and went far above and beyond my highest hopes and expectations after I was still facing harassment and threats from a VERY aggressive Collection Agency trying to collect on the discharged debt and due to the very gracious help from Holly who is FANTASTIC I feel so much better and cannot thank her and the entire team at Debt Advisors enough.
